A WordPress theme for Liberal Democrat websites

Today I am making the WordPress theme that I have developed for Liberal Democrat websites available for download for free to party members.

I wrote the first version of this theme some time ago and have been using it without any real problems on the Luton Liberal Democrats website since before the General Election. One of the reasons blogging has been a bit light over the last few weeks has been that I have been revising and tidying up the code to make the theme ready to be released for other people to use.

For more information about the theme and to download all the theme’s files visit it’s home page:

I’ve called the theme “Lib Dem Aqua” as it aims to reflect the look and feel of the national party website and fit with the current Liberal Democrat branding by using an “aqua” colour palette.

Using an installation of WordPress, the Lib Dem Aqua theme, and selected plugins from the WordPress plugin directory; candidates, campaigners and local parties should have all they need to create and maintain an easy to use, flexible and professional looking online presence.

If you have a WordPress powered website why not download the theme, try it out, and let me know what you think?

    Just moving Gosport from Joomla to WordPress and I came across your Theme.

    Many thanks for developing this. I’ll attempt to set up and customise the website over the next week or so.
